This is the last post in a seven part series on going slow in order to go fast.

This series has been about an important counter-intuitive reality that applies to advancing disciple making movements:

You have to go slow if you want to go fast.

Here are a few ways I have applied this principle in the last five days:

Agonizing in prayer with co-workers about who could be praying for the people we are seeking to reach (prayer mobilization).

Nominating six local Christians to attend a disciple making movement training next month (local workers).

Delivering just-in-time coaching to a group of disciple making movement practitioners (the right training).

Carrying my neighbor’s groceries to her top floor apartment (attractional 2.0).

Taking inventory of batons I have not yet passed to others (letting go).

All of this has taken time. Some of it has inconvenienced me and all of it has slowed me down. But it is all worth it, because I want to see the Gospel spread rapidly and be obeyed by people who do not yet know and love Jesus.

Your turn:

  1. How are you slowing down in order to go fast?
  2. What are you discovering about yourself in the process?
